#FeelTheHeat with #famestars


I really appreciate all those people who carry out their day to day activities on the road during such extreme summers. Be it vendors, or the labourers, they totally deserve a salute for working so hard. Vending involves an enormous rate of physical labour and this is the reason why it's not everyone's cup of tea.

These people know no heat, they know no cold. You will see them making rides of the streets or waiting at their thelas early in the morning and late into the night. Be it rain, breeze or sun, there's no stopping them, they carry out their daily routine, work hard and sweat out to make a living.

Having born and brought up in the urban luxuries, just the thought of taking the place of a roadside vendor or a construction labourer and working under this scorching summer heat makes me shudder.

Bangalore is blessed to have got the best of weather but Summer here is as hot as anywhere else in India. It's just that we are surrounded with amenities like ACs, fans, coolers and a beautiful infrastructure which doesn't let us actually feel the heat.

I happened to make a visit to the market here in Shivijainagar and trust me it was hell! I had to brave the public packed busy streets and visit at least fifteen shops there until I was finished with whatever I wanted. By the time I reached the 10th shop I was sweaty all over, feeling dizzy and my head was burning like a hot pan. My hair had become a reckless mess, eyes were droopy and I was ready to give away my life for a sip of water. No kidding. When I came back home I remember spending a long deal of time pondering over how the vendors in that place bear the such scorching heat, that too from morning to night, every single day!

To feel the same state of such vendors and other people working on the roads, the #Famestars came up with a wonderful CSR initiative called #FeelTheHeat on the 25th of May. This was a very interesting initiative where the #famestars exchanged roles with some vendors for half an hour and did their work while they got some rest. Check out the video below for a sneak in into their endeavor.

Just watching this video makes one sweat. Truly, the work these people do demands so much physical hard work! I would love to see more people taking this up, if not making a big deal of difference, it will definitely bring a smile on a vendor's face. :)
